Not a whole lot to it, just the standard swerve drive.

Is there any real advantage to a caster design compared to a tradition swerve design? Wouldn’t it substantially increase the current draw from the steering motor?
How does this look with your frame perimeter chief?
Will this be the 1086 swerve to actually drive?
You’re making an assumption that the wheel never exits the frame perimeter, which is not a requirement most years.
This doesn’t look like a caster swerve to me. The wheels/axle seem to be pivoting around the center of axis.
^Was referencing this; the Lego swerve was just one we made at an FLL camp we host.
Lego swerve, really cool.
It is really a mechanical trail swerve.
Edit for clarity:
Caster is specifically the angle of the steering axis for a steered wheel. Steering axis offset can also be used to add mechanical trail, which is what has been done in this design.
Yes, I’m loads of fun at parties.
i can tell! Aren’t most engineers anyways? X’D, loved your way of explaining it
